Nashua police warn of phone scam involving IRS claims

NASHUA — Police are warning residents about a phone scam from individuals claiming to be from the Internal Revenue Service.

The caller advises residents they owe a certain amount of cash to the IRS and are told if payment is not received they will face immediate arrest, according to police.

In one instance, an elderly couple was provided detailed instructions to withdraw cash and then purchase gift cards/green dot cards to make their payment.

A clerk at a local convenience store cautioned the couple about a possible scam, and the couple suffered no monetary loss, police said.

Authorities are asking anyone who may have been the victim of a similar crime to contact police, and to always verify the identities of any individual or agency demanding cash via telephone or email.
